We may verify that information from sources referred to in your communications with our Customer Relations Team or in this collection notice.

Information will be collected via phone, web platform and via email to address your enquiries and respond to them. The same information may be collected on each occasion there is contact, but we will endeavour to minimise the collection by assigning a case number for repeated contact relating to the same enquiry.

  • we cannot get hold of you and we rely on publicly available information to update your contact details;
  • we exchange information with your legal or financial advisers or other authorised representatives; and
  • we need to contact you for product recall purposes.

We may collect this information from you directly or from third parties, including:

  • someone acting on your behalf, such as a parent or guardian, agent, or authorised operator of your account; and
